Are We Talking About The Same Body Part? Clitorial-Vaginal Confusion

Sex is still a fascinating, expressed very much individually, and the subject of lots of discussion. Sexual arousal and orgasm disorders have been given new names, and the never ending G spot discussion had a new 8 women study to prove it exists (although it's off to the side more than we thought in some of us). We've had more sexual discussion in the past weeks about our clitoris than in the many generations before us. The Huffington post editors have admonished us as a society, and us as the medical practitioners as being in need of some serious clitoris education, specifically they are saying we need more clitoracy. Although I graduated medical school, well, lets just say a very long time before this date, it has been said that whatever I thought I dissected in all the anatomy and cadaver classes prior to 1998, was wrong, because it wasn't before 1998 that the true anatomy of the clitoris was accurately revealed. With this newer description all types of new terms and locations of the clitoris have apparently been unleashed in the media to great consternation of the some sex experts. These authors have cautioned that all sorts of new terms have gotten hold in the media that have no scientific basis in medical physiology study. Although it is true, the clitoris is left out of much sexual discussion. Most often you hear gynos and patients asking: do you have any sexual concerns, or how is your bladder, or any problems with uterine cramps. Rarely does a gyno come right out with the, how is the function of your clitoris? Kind of makes one think that question might be met with a jaw dropping, 'excuse me' for a response. So we do need to discuss these issues, so we call can truly be more open and be able to discuss what ever body part we want to discuss together. In fairness, all medical visits do have to have a prioritized list of discussion topics, especially since women are being encouraged to retreat from routine care. The anatomy of the clitoris is described in human anatomy textbooks, and it's an organ with several parts, but relatively small, and surrounded by other organs. Now apparently the female anatomy has become a place newly redefined by all sorts of could be and would be anatomistsThese Italian authors emphasized that various terms, increasingly popularized by the lay media, including " The clitoral/vaginal/uterine orgasm, G/A/C/U spot orgasm, and female ejaculation", are unsubstantiated by scientific study terms that are not validated in enough well done scientific research so should not be used by sexologists, women, and mass media. Clitoral bulbs, clitoral or clitoris-urethrovaginal complex, urethrovaginal space, periurethral glans, Halban's fascia erogenous zone, vaginal anterior fornix erogenous zone, genitosensory component of the vagus nerve, and G-spot, are terms used by some sexologists, but they are not accepted or shared by experts in human anatomy."It is true that an actual scientific study of an 83 year old cadaver claimed to prove the G spot is really a spot. And in a full 8 cadavers in the newest attempt to define this tangle of nerves and blood vessels at the front of the vaginal under the bladder. So discussion continues.
